Sneak Peek into the Past of Derry Girls
The season finale of Derry Girls season 2 had everyone on their toes. The season ended with English fella James making a decisive choice of staying in Derry instead of returning to England with his mother. Jame’s mother had returned much to the surprise of everyone at the very beginning of the episode. He announced to his friends Clare, Erin, and Oria that he would be leaving Derry for England. As the plot unfolds, we see a dramatic, heart-wrenching confrontation with his cousin Michelle. Michelle asked James to stay, showing her vulnerable side for the first time. He left but only to come back moments before Clinton’s speech and screamed “I AM A DERRY GIRL!”
